Hunter Thompson Photo & Design

Yesterday in the Collegian we ran a special Basketball Preview section that featured both men’s and women’s basketball. With the commotion from our soon to be released “Notebook to Playbook” project and also trying to avoid copying our Football Preview from September, we honestly struggled developing a concept for this project. Finally we settled on this profile and dramatic portraiture. The women and men have different practice times so I had to do this photo shoot twice and make the light absolutely seamless since the players would be layered so close together. Luckily, it printed better than I think anything has this year. That is one problem working for a newspaper: newsprint. It will never capture your work as it looks on a high-res, color calibrated screen.
